Because nothing says I love you like breakfast in bed, here are two easy recipes for homemade sous-vide smoked salmon… perfect for Valentine’s day!

Both of these recipes result in perfectly moist & flavourful salmon. Sous-vide cooking allows for precise temperature control, this translates into great texture and moisture. Smokey lapsang souchong imparts its characteristic smokey-pine quality to this recipe.
